Vagina Dentata: Mountain Sister

Buy Tickets

Vagina Dentata is the solo endeavor of Iza Mortag Freund, a multidisciplinary artist residing in underground clubs, art galleries, and theatres worldwide.  Her newly composed piece Mountain Sister combines music, performance, and experimental stage art. Befitting for an artist named Vagina Dentata – literally "vagina with teeth", a constant source of castrating horror in folk tales across cultures – the piece is a poetic yet harsh exploration of the female psyche and the contrast between the light and dark. 

Mountain Sister combines a simple theatrical setup with an exploration of movement, expressive voice- and bodywork, and hard-hitting, soaring music reaching both the ethereal and dark depths of the avant-garde. The theremin is used as a spherical sound machine, elongating every movement, while droning, pulsating rhythms constantly move the piece forward. Combined with a versatile, multifaceted use of the human voice, the result is a live-staged soundscape where the here and now is constantly under improvisational attack.
